|"Rearming the Spineless Opuntia" robotic cactus sculpture - Amy Youngs|
The sculpture Rearming the Spineless Opuntia is a machine designed to protect a spineless cactus. The Spineless Opuntia is an actual, living cactus that has been altered by humans so that it lacks its spines. It is, therefore, easier to eat and to feed to cattle than its relative, commonly known as the Prickly Pear cactus. Because humans find it to be an economically valuable plant, we will cultivate it and protect it, however, I began to imagine what might happen if humans abandoned the Spinele...

|Some experimental observations on circulating currents in a crossed field plasma accelerator - Jedlicka, J.|
Experiments on a thermally ionized argon plasma suggest that applying a Lorentz force by means of orthogonal electric and magnetic fields to an electrically conducting fluid flow imposes necessary but not sufficient conditions for acceleration. There are, in fact, many combinations of current and magnetic field which cause decelerations of the fluid. The deceleration arises from a retarding force which may be larger than the applied Lorentz force...

A probabilistic analysis, using the 2-parameter Weibull-Johnson method, was performed on experimental life test data from space shuttle actuator bearings. Experiments were performed on a test rig under simulated conditions to determine the life and failure mechanism of the grease lubricated bearings that support the input shaft of the space shuttle body flap actuators. The failure mechanism was wear that can cause loss of bearing preload...

|The nature of cometary materials - Stephens, Jame|
Because cometary surfaces are likely to be far colder and of a different composition than planetary surfaces, there are some new considerations that must be examined in regards to placing instrumented packages or sample return devices on their surfaces. The qualitative analysis of the problem of attaching hardware to a comet and not being ejected back into space can be divided into two parts. The first problem is to pierce the mantle and obtain access to the icy core...

|Improvement of Raman lidar algorithm for quantifying aerosol extinction - Russo, Felicita|
Aerosols are particles of different composition and origin and influence the formation of clouds which are important in atmospheric radiative balance. At the present there is high uncertainty on the effect of aerosols on climate and this is mainly due to the fact that aerosol presence in the atmosphere can be highly variable in space and time. Monitoring of the aerosols in the atmosphere is necessary to better understanding many of these uncertainties...

A neural net architecture is proposed to estimate, in real-time, the fatigue life of mechanical components, as part of the Intelligent Control System for Reusable Rocket Engines. Arbitrary component loading values were used as input to train a two hidden-layer feedforward neural net to estimate component fatigue damage. The ability of the net to learn, based on a local strain approach, the mapping between load sequence and fatigue damage has been demonstrated for a uniaxial specimen...

The unique nature of chondrules has been known for nearly two centuries. Modern techniques of analysis have shown that these millimeter sized silicate objects are among the oldest objects in our solar system. Researchers have devised textural and chemical classification systems for chondrules in an effort to determine their origins. It is agreed that most chondrules were molten at some point in their history, and experimental analogs suggest that the majority of chondrules formed from temperatur...

|Titanium spallation cross sections between 30 and 584 MeV and Ar-39 activities on the moon - Steinburnn, F.|
The production cross sections of Ar39 for Ti spallation at 45-, 319-, 433-, and 584-MeV proton energies were measured to be 0.37 or - 0.09, 12.4 or - 3.7, 9.1 or - 2.7, and 17.8 or - 6.2 mb, respectively. Normalized Ar39 production rates and activities are also derived for protons above 40 MeV and for three differential proton spectra of the type approximately E(- alpha). It is concluded that, even for samples of high-Ti content, Ti spallation by solar protons below 200-MeV energy does not contr...

|The effects of shock wave compaction on the transition temperatures of A15 structure superconductors - Otto, G. H|
Several superconductors with the A15 structure exhibit a positive pressure coefficient, indicating that their transition temperatures increase with applied pressure. Powders of the composition Nb3Al, Nb3Ge, Nb3(Al0.75Ge0.25), and V3Si were compacted by explosive shock waves. The superconducting properties of these materials were measured before and after compaction and it was found that regardless of the sign of the pressure coefficient, the transition temperature is always lowered...
